Opeola Necklace

I purchased this necklace for my mom for Christmas and she absolutely loved it so I’m so excited, I’ve ordered a few things from Design by Abike and I recommend this Black owned company

Afrocentric and you know it!

Love the quality of Ankara and the classy cool designs ! Can’t wait to wear my piece with leggings or jeggings.
American flavor with African flair, best describes me as an African American. So, Abike’s designs allow me to connect with the Motherland, yet still have American style. Well done E ku se, my sister!


Awesome shorts. Beautiful print. Well made. But too small. I ordered a 16 but it fit like a 12.

African Print Dress: Yulvoncia | Made to Order
Just beautiful

The dress is a Christmas gift purchased for a family member that has everything...until this. The look and feel are gorgeous. I believe it will definitely be the dress to stop the show when she enters the room. I put a note in her gift to give it back to me if she doesn't love it, although I know she will. I love it!

I have not recieved my order
